"That's baloney. Go walk through a shelter some time, and you'll see that it's packed with kittens and puppies."

I have walked through a shelter, I have worked in them and I have been the guy that had to put the animals down.

Bottom line, not every animal that goes to a shelter is there because of an irresponsible pet owner. Some need to be destroyed for health and safety reasons and shelters take them in because some people can not afford to go to veterinarian. In other situations life happens and to state that you know why people turn in their animals is unlikely if you truly feel the way you do. It doesn't sound like you are willing to get to know them our their situations. Sadly, animals are neglected, but to trash people in general who surrender pets is completely irresponsible on your part. I would never suggest anybody use your rescue organization because of your attitude. Like I said, you need to reflect long and hard on how you represent rescue in general.

"One of the essential truths you learn while doing rescue -- people are idjits."

You can try and rationalize your way out of this but if you continue to characterize pet owners the way you have knowing how you are being received then it is hateful on your part.
